Many robotics techniques have been applied in agriculture in Japan, including fruit harvesting robots for tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, and grapes. Work at Okayama University has Involved manipulators, end-cffcctors, visual sensors, and traveling components based on biological objects to give robots robustness and flexbiliy. Horticultural approachcs such as selecting plant varieties and changing training systems adaptable to robot use arc needed, however. We studied components and functions for fruit-harvesting robots.
